The campaign, however, hasn’t gone down well with a section of Twitter. While some have been lauding Ali Xeeshan for his powerful initiative against dowry, others have trolled the designer for the price range of his lehengas.
A user wrote, “The recent campaign by Xeeshan Ali against dowry is impactful. So I looked up the designer Ali Xeeshan. Google took me to his bridal collection. One would have to sell their kidney to buy his designed dresses.”
Another tweeted, “So Ali Xeeshan’s campaign condemns jahez culture and promotes investing millions in your bridal dress. A classic case of a designer trying to become woke and turning into a joke.”
“So Ali Xeeshan is basically telling you to invest the money you intended for your dowry into one of his dresses. So it’s a win win, for Ali Xeeshan that is,” read a tweet.
